Revised Cross-State Air Pollution Rule Update
On this page:
On October 15, 2020, EPA proposed the Revised Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) Update in order to fully address 21 states' outstanding interstate pollution transport obligations for the 2008 ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). Starting in the 2021 ozone season, the proposed rule would require additional emissions reductions of nitrogen oxides (NOX) from power plants in 12 states, improving air quality for millions of Americans.
EPA held a public hearing on November 12, 2020. The public comment period for the proposal is open until December 14.
